Hi all there! I'm officially starting a new work...The Voodoo! A few words about the 72 Revell kit: It dates back to 1991 and some say it's based on the 48 Monogram. It presents engraved surface detail that is fine but not always accurate. It's overall correct in shape in my opinion but suffers of some simplifications and inaccuracies. The interior detail is a good basis for those -me being the first- who want to add a personal touch. Even if it cannot compete in details with more recent kits it can be turned out into a good and sweet replica. Going back to the inaccuracies, the first one i noticed were the vents on the engine nacelles. In particular those on the right side were represented specularly identical to the ones on the left side. That's incorrect! The Vodoo had different shaped vents on right and left: on the left side the main vent was circular while on the right side it was rectangular. So starting point has been fixing that. With lot of patience I scratch built the new vent and since I was working on that area I take the occasion to add some detail, to correct and improve the other vents: Now I'm wondering whether to start from cockpit or from engine exhausts the latter attracting my attention much for the fact they are quite spartans to be gentle and need a special effort to be turned out into something cool! Hope to have gained your curiosity... Bye! Giovanni
